Over the summer, I had so much fun trying out different hair colours! Seeing if I felt more intelligent as a red head or had more fun as a blond… the conclusion was that I preferred the naturally brunette me!
 
So, understandably so, this new study makes me happy: 

A study found that men, in fact, overwhelmingly prefer brunettes over blondes!! Woohooo!

2,000 men were polled to find out the features they find most attractive in the opposite sex. A third of all those polled (33.1%) said they find brown hair the most attractive, while 28.6% said they liked black – making up a whopping total of 59.7% over all preferring dark-haired girls! Those gentlemen who do prefer blondes made up just 29.5% of the vote, while redheads came in as the least popular with men, taking just 8.8% of the vote.

I did like the red… but being single, let’s go with what the men like! Dark it shall stay!

One of the greatest things about the Stanley Cup is that it actually gets to travel around for a day with the winning hockey players and meet up with fans in their hometowns. The trials and tribulations of Lord Stanley’s chalice are long and much-documented. Children have been baptized from it. Dogs have eaten from it. And barrels of booze have spilled from its sacred bowl.

With the relatively new tradition of each winning player spending a day with the Cup, the odds of damage, dings and misadventure have increased. Which brings us to Michael Ryder.

Before heading off to his hometown of Bonavista, the Newfoundland native took some time to show off the Cup at a St. John’s hotel — where the wind promptly blew the Cup over and putting a big dent in the side!!!! 

 

I guess it looks more hockey MEAN now!

What do you ask for as a wedding gift when you are not one to like asking for cash, but you also have been living with your partner for a while and just don’t need anything really?!?!
 

A new registry now lets foodie brides and grooms ask for restaurant gift certificates as wedding gifts!!

Foodieregistry.com is a website that lets couples register for specific restaurant gift certificates as wedding gifts. Apparently, it is currently only available for to-be husband and wives in New York, Chicago, Denver and San Francisco BUT will be expanding to more cities soon. Maybe Canada too!

What do you think of the idea?

An online poll in Sweden has concluded that Nurses and Doctors have the sexiest jobs! I am ready to bet that that result might apply to us Canadians too!! Hello McSteamy and McDreamy!!

The two professions tied for 1st place, with each getting 20% of the votes.

Men and women seem to be in agreement that the sexiest professions are professions where people take care of other people.

The polls also showed that women feel chefs have the second sexiest job. Hey, they take care of our tummy’s needs — just as important!!

What is the most sexy job in your mind? Un-sexy job?

This planet is definitely a girl’s best friend!
 

Astronomers say they have found a distant planet that could be made of diamond! “The evolutionary history and amazing density of the planet all suggest it is comprised of carbon — i.e. a massive diamond . . . ”

HELLO?? FORGET FLYING TO MARS!!

The planet is 4,000 light years away and has slightly more mass than Jupiter.

Mmmm 4,000 light years away… how long will that take?! Maybe the same amount of time it takes me to find someone wanting to put part of that planet on my finger 😉 hahaha

George Lucas has gone back to the editing room for the upcoming Blu-ray release of the Star Wars saga, as he always does whenever the Star Wars movies are to be released in a new format… what did he tweek this time?!
 
YODA!
 
For over a decade now, Star Wars fans have had to live with the fact that Yoda in The Phantom Menace is portrayed by a puppet made out of material that actually exists in the physical world and not a purely CGI creation like his castmate Jar Jar Binks. Well, not anymore!
 
Check out the old versus new Yoda!
 
Old:
New:  
 
One might kid that Lucas is a non-stop doer of CGI-makeovers (seems like it happens every couple of years), but this tweek actually works!

Well, it’s a go with ot without Mr Bill Murray!
 
That’s what Dan Aykroyd said about Ghostbuster 3: ”We will be doing the movie and hopefully with Mr. Murray. That is our hope. (But) the concept is much larger than each individual role.”
 
The latest instalement will film in Spring 2012.
 
According to Aykroyd, the new script shows the original ghostbusting team haven’t aged too well. He says: ”My character, Ray, is now blind in one eye and can’t drive the Cadillac. He’s got a bad knee and can’t carry the packs. Egon is too large to get into the harness. We need young blood and that’s the premise. We’re gonna hand it to a new generation.” haha LOVE IT!
 
I can’t wait! The original Ghostbuster is actually my 1st ”going to the movies” memory! Do you remember what movie was featured when you went to the cinema for the 1st time!?
